Mumbai, May 20: When ‘Mr. Perfectionist’ Aamir Khan and the ‘Tracer Bullet’ Ravi Shastri are in for some fun, there’s bound to be euphoria. In a video posted on Star Sports’ social media handles on Thursday, the Bollywood super star is seen plying his trade with cricket on a rooftop terrace.
While showcasing his skills, Aamir even goes on to make a passing remark – ‘IPL mein chance haikya (do I have chance to feature in the IPL)?’ he said. His comment received a quirky reply from former Team India head coach Ravi Shastri, part of the Star Sports’commentary panel for the ongoing Tata IPL 2022. When asked by anchor and commentator JatinSapru about Aamir’s cricket skills, Shastri said in jest, “Hey Jatin, he looks in good nick. Probably needs to spend a little more time on his footwork, but should get into most teams.”
The quirky banter didn’t end there. The actor’s production house – Aamir Khan Productions – posted a video on Friday which featured him pretty disheartened after Shastri’s analysis. The tweet also rallied behind Aamir with #AamirInMyTeam, encouraging fans to add the actor in their respective teams.
“Ravi, I am a little disappointed that you are not happy with my footwork. I don’t think you have watched Lagaan,” Aamir said. “Don’t think you’ve had a proper look – now look at me again,” said the actor and broke into a dance move with an aim to prove a point that his footwork is top notch! “Please recommend me to someone,” he added.
Aamir and Shastri’s fun chat has taken social media by storm with their conversation receiving many plaudits and responses from viewers and fans alike. What will Shastri’s response to Aamir be?
